Anything can happen on Nim's Island, a magical place ruled by a young girl's imagination.

But Alexandra, the author of the Rover books, leads a reclusive life in the big city. When Nim's father goes missing from their island, a twist of fate brings her together with Alexandra. Now, they must draw courage from their fictional hero, Alex Rover, and find strength in each other to conquer Nim's Island.
- Critics' reviews
"A quest for all ages. (...) An entertaining, diverting adventure saga that offers excitement and a relatable heroine for children, and also will remind their parents of favorite classics from their own youth. (...) Rating: ★★½ (out of four)."
Claudia Puig: USA Today
"Sweet but ho-hum adaptation of Wendy Orr’s novel, a comedy-adventure that never quite finds its tone."
Jeannette Catsoulis: The New York Times
"8- to 12-year-olds will have a good time, and you'll have a good time watching them have a good time. Otherwise, the film's an oddity - an engaging, slightly overcooked fantasy"
Ty Burr: Boston Globe
